AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (ACA) COMPLIANCE
eFileMyForms is experienced in processing Forms 1094-B, 1094-C, 1095-B, and 1095-C. Users can manually enter, or import, their ACA reporting information. Business rules and validations are built-in to help prevent IRS rejections and/or penalties. Once filed, users are provided with direct IRS feedback and are able to file corrections, if required. Services are competitively priced based on volume plus an annual $99 ACA fee (per customer, includes unlimited filers).

IRS STATE FILING
The Combined Federal State Filing (CFSF) Program allows filers to submit forms directly to participating states when electronic filing with the IRS. eFileMyForms automatically submits forms to the CFSF on behalf of filers at NO ADDITIONAL COST. eFileMyForms allows users to print paper State Copies, suitable for submission to some states, to allow for direct reporting for states that do not participate in the CFSF program. Filers with extensive state filing requirements should consider transitioning to 1099 Pro, Inc.’s Enterprise or W-2 Pro software products that generate state subset files suitable for filing directly with states requiring direct reporting.

TIN/NAME MATCHING
Customers have the option, when placing an order, to validate their TIN/Name combinations and check whether or not they match IRS records. Any mismatch found can subsequently be corrected to allow filers to reduce or eliminate IRS related penalties.
